Website Privacy Policy

Introduction
We, Paula Gordon (site owner) and Studio Z (site design and hosting service), in consideration of your right to be informed about what kind of data this website collects, post this Website Privacy Policy to describe what kind of personal information we collect online and what we do with it.

We respect the five core Principles of Privacy Protection outlined by the US Federal Trade Commission in its document, Fair Information Practice Principles (available at https://web.archive.org/web/20090205180646/http://ftc.gov:80/reports/privacy3/fairinfo.shtm):
(1) Notice/Awareness,
(2) Choice/Consent,
(3) Access/Participation,
(4) Integrity/Security, and
(5) Enforcement/Redress.

Type of information we collect
We do not collect any information from you via this website. You can contact Paula Gordon via the methods listed on the Contact page or by regular mail at the address below. In that case, you can provide as much or as little information as you like.

We do not ask for credit card information or social security numbers on this website, nor do our commercial procedures require us to collect that information from you by any means. (July 2016.)

Cookies
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow). These small files enable the site's and/or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information, such as a visitor's geographical location.

This site may use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer a better site experience in the future (e.g., better page descriptions, more or different content, or better site navigation).

Also, we may contract with third-party service providers to help us better understand who our site visitors are and how they use the site. These service providers are permitted to use the information collected only on our behalf to help us conduct and improve our business. As of this update (July 2016), no such service is being contracted or contemplated.

If you prefer, you can adjust the settings in your browser to trigger a warning each time a cookie is being sent or to reject all cookies automatically. If your browser is set to reject cookies, some website features on this and other sites may not function properly. On this site, we anticipate that the only feature to be disabled would be the feature that shows links already visited in a different color, but there may be other disruptions.

We aspire to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, which would give you the option of visiting this site anonymously.

(Update on 9 July 2016: Proxy servers disable Javascript, so some features may not be available when viewing the site anonymously; for example, links and popups might not work.)

How we use your information
The information we collect from you may be used in any of the following ways:

  • Most importantly, the information you voluntarily provide via this website will be used to respond to your requests for information and/or services.

  • As well, we collect and compile comments and feedback, which visitors may voluntarily provide, in order to enhance our services, improve our website, and provide customer service.

  • Finally, through the use of cookies, information collected may be used to personalize your experience of this website each time you visit, and may be used by us to improve our appearance in searches, page rank, and internal site navigation (see "Cookies" section above).

Your e-mail address
The email address you provide for order processing (e.g., PayPal), if it is different from your correspondence address, will only be used for the express purpose of conducting a specific transaction, and will be removed from the system upon completion of that transaction.

The email address you provide for correspondence will be used to respond to inquiries and to send information and updates pertaining to your project and commercial transactions with us.

Your correspondence e-mail address may also be used to send you occasional company newsletters, updates, and/or service information.

Note: If at any time you would like to stop receiving unsolicited e-mails from us, please reply to any e-mail we have sent in the past and type "UNSUBSCRIBE" in the body of the e-mail—preferably at the top. We will place your e-mail address on our "Do Not Mail" list.

How we protect your information
We do not ask for credit card information or social security numbers on this website, nor do our commercial procedures require us to collect that information from you by any means or for any purpose. Credit card payments are handled via reputable third parties.
(As of July 2016.)

Name, address, contact information, project information: This information is stored in electronic form on-site at business premises, at a workstation with restricted access. The data is maintained and secured in accordance with our Record Management Policy, which will be provided on request.
(Currently in development, July 2016.)

Disclosure of information to third parties
Personally identifiable information: We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information without notice and consent, with two exceptions:

(1) For the express purpose of delivering the service requested. We may share your information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, as long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

(2) For legal purposes. We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, to enforce our site policies, or to protect our own or others' rights, property, or safety.

Non-personally identifiable information: Non-personally identifiable site-visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. However, as of this update (July 2016), no such action is being taken or contemplated.

We comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act
Since we operate a commercial website or online service that collects personally identifiable information through the Internet about individual consumers residing in California who visit our website, our Privacy Policy is California Online Privacy Protection Act compliant.

To comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, our website meets all of the following criteria:

  • We provide a link pointing to our Privacy Policy on our Home page; it is located at the bottom of every page on the site.
